3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good head, lively condition. Enjoyable sweetness at first balanced by that malty dryness. Moreish. A lot better out of a bottle than Bass and not that much dearer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: clear pale to medium amber with one finger of loose ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (2/5) Aroma: biscuity caramel and toffee, fruity esters, grassy and earthy. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body tending to watery, moderate to low carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5)
Not much to say about this: biscuity malt leads the way, finishing with a mild earthy bitter. A very typical pub pint. (10/20)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Malty biscuity bitter. It’s ok, but I’d like more flavours and aromas personally.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A smooth rich bitter that is easy to drink with a nice sweet centre. Easy to find and usually enjoyable every time.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just bottled brown beer, I remember drinking this years ago on draught, and it had a far more interesting malt flavour.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, some red berries and musty, earthy hops. Taste of sweet caramel, red berries, some mineral, subtle biscuit and slight earthy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A soft, biscuity malt bitterness in the finish. This is disappointing, like a cheap bitter shandy. Light, malty and slightly minerally. Better on cask.
